Out of suspicion, when she asked the caller about the errors, he replied that she had written her father’s name wrongly in the assignment. However, as mentioned by PTI, the students do not have to write their father’s name in their respective assignments.
Following the incident, the officials have said that they will approach the police in this regard. Also, SOL has alerted the students by issuing a notice warning students against falling prey to such calls.
